Super Saturday Smartphone Deals
Verizon is offering a trade-in of any eligible device to a free iPhone 7, LG V20, Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy S7, with a two-year installment package.

The other deal offers a $300 dollars gift card when consumers buy two iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone SE devices. For those buying an LG G5 or the LGV20 mobile phone, they get a free LG TV.
